Comfort, Protection, and Convenience: Bitex™ 70
Bitex™ 70 is the flagship material of this line, with the look and feel of cotton from an innovative (and highly protective) nonwoven. A breathable microporous film on the outside provides thorough protection, but the interior layers are what make it such a unique material. Bonded with powder adhesive, the inside layer is spunbond polypropylene – we call it the “comfort layer” for the superior flexibility and feel of the material. The inside feels just like cotton, and the entire assembly breathes wonderfully, yet it provides protection tested to meet AAMI standards. Bitex™ 70, like any Protex™ material, can be cut and configured for use in gowns, caps, shoe covers, and more – providing protection from head to toe.
Standing up to Washing and Reuse
Yes, with the right adhesive, Protex™ can also be configured to endure several washes! Bitex™ 70 was conceived of as a premium alternative to traditional disposable medical gown materials, more breathable with better protection. However, it can be made even more sturdy and economical, withstanding machine washing and ready for reuse. It comes down to our powder adhesive process and our proprietary CLAFⓇ material – a slightly stronger adhesive, as well as a sturdier base mesh are used to create a washable nonwoven gown with heavy tear resistance. Medical PPE in situations like dentists offices, doctors offices, hospitals, or labs can be reused several times – spreading out the initial cost and potentially saving money on disposable gowns.
Premium and Affordable
Protex™ can be custom made to different specifications, and cost-effectiveness is one of them. We also produce a low-cost alternative Protex™ engineered to be highly disposable. Still extremely protective and tough, this product features the same base design, but is created with the most economical materials and production methods available. It’s just another way that we can engineer a solution to fit your goals with Protex™.
